Today we’d like to introduce you to Noelle Abent.
Noelle, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have a long story that started in childhood! Both of my parents are Unity ministers, and I was brought up immersed in spirituality, meditation and energy healing. My father taught me Reiki level 1 when I was 13. Although I didn’t comprehend the power of it at that time, I was sensitive to the energy. After my parents divorced, my father and his partner started a Metaphysical Christian church called Inner Quest. They offered Reiki healing nights, meditation and other classes, as well as Sunday services. I’ve stayed active in Unity and Inner Quest throughout my childhood, and still today.
Skipping forward, I graduated from the University of Georgia with a BS in Child and Family Development. I also trained in Reiki level 2 one summer when I was home from college, as healing continued to be a passion of mine. After college I moved around from Wyoming, to Colorado, to California working in resorts. Traveling is another passion of mine! I eventually moved back to Atlanta when Inner Quest started a seminary program, and I was called to join in.
When I moved back to Atlanta I attended seminary for 5 years, and got a job working in commercial real estate. I was ordained in 2013, and then completed my Reiki Master training in 2014. I worked at Inner Quest for 5 years doing administrative work, and eventually taking clients for energy healing and spiritual counseling.
It’s my foundation in spirituality that gave me the anchor to start a business such as this. I went on my own and founded Energetic Therapies in February 2017. The business training I received in all my jobs, and the spiritual training I received from my family and church gave me the experience I needed to get where I am today. I’m so grateful!
Has it been a smooth road?
It’s been an interesting road, mostly smooth, but never a dull moment! I’ve been open a little over a year now, and I had no idea what I was doing when I started. I knew how to do my healing work, but running a business was a brand new experience. I wrote my own business plan, but struggled with all the decisions I had to make such as how to advertise, how to get clients, how to manage my money, how to set up the business, what to charge, etc. All the basic decisions were very overwhelming because it was only me, and I was starting from scratch and didn’t want to make the wrong decision. Now I’ve realized it’s not about making a wrong decision, but just making a decision so I can move forward, because I can always change my mind! In this first year I’ve realized what works and what doesn’t, so the year ahead looks a lot smoother!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Energetic Therapies – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I started Energetic Therapies because I’m passionate about health, helping people, and energy healing! I wanted people to have a place to go that offers healthy ways to relieve stress, pain, and sickness, we live in a busy, chaotic world. Everyone is so stressed out, no matter who you are or what you do. Stress is rampant causing chronic tension, pain and disease, because stress weakens the immune system.
Adults and children are on prescription medication for anxiety/depression/pain relief, etc., and this is taking the symptoms away, but not healing the cause of the illness. The alternative therapies I offer compliment traditional medicine for complete healing and wellness, working on the body, mind, Spirit and emotions.
A few of the services I offer are: Reiki- a gentle, hands on energy healing technique. Reiki assists the body’s natural healing processes by balancing the natural energy within, and relieving the stress, tension and pain. A lot of times our bodies won’t heal because our energy is blocked. Reiki releases these energy blocks, thus allowing the body to heal itself.
Chakra Balancing- Chakras are the energy centers of our bodies. When they become blocked, we become tired, emotional or stuck. Chakra balancing clears the blocks from your chakras and realigns your energy field so you feel balanced, energized and centered.
Spiritual Counseling- A lot of times people get stuck in a problem or issue, and this effects every aspect of their life. I look at the issue from a spiritual perspective, finding new ways to heal and move forward. I come from a metaphysical background and a typical session may include a meditation or visualization exercise. You’ll come away with positive techniques to take home and help you in your healing process.
Energetic Therapies is unique in the services offered, and that anyone can benefit from energy healing! You don’t have to be sick, you might just want a relaxing hour to yourself. Everyone deserves that! I’m also out in the community leading meditations or giving mini Reiki sessions. My vision is to continue to awaken and educate others to the benefits of energy healing so they experience total health and well-being in their body, mind, Spirit, and emotions.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I like Atlanta’s wide range of diversity in culture and people. I’m an Atlanta native, and I can go out and be the only one in the room from here, and I love that! Also, Atlanta has something for everyone. We have the arts, museums, theater, a great music scene, and amazing restaurants. And, I’m a nature girl, so I love that hiking, lakes, and outdoor activities aren’t too far away.
What I like least about Atlanta is all the traffic! Although there are so many amazing people from all over, everyone is driving, and it makes for a stressful commute. Living in Marietta, it should take 30min for me to get to the city, but I usually have to plan for an hour.
